Our plans for the future of 217 Harrow Road.
We are working up plans for a new building to support people who are homeless or sleeping rough in Westminster. The redevelopment will also deliver new homes, affordable homes and local benefits, all within the existing site.
This website is just about plans for the redevelopment of the building, which we're delivering with our partner, Stories. If you want to visit St Mungo's main website, click here.
"We work together with people on their recovery. It’s a partnership. We look at people’s strengths, ambitions and goals, and as such we recognise that the living environment is as important as the staff and support within the four walls."
Steve Douglas CBE, Chief Executive of St Mungo's.
As well as a caring and professional team, we need the best possible facilities to reflect our commitment to tackling homelessness. Read Steve's blog on why this building is so important and watch our video below.
Learn about our plans for the future of 217 Harrow Road
Our building is over half a century old and is in need of modernisation. With a new building that befits our ethos, we can deliver better, more flexible accommodation and flagship services. We’re working up plans that we want to share with you.
Help shape our plans and have your say
St Mungo’s and Stories, our development partner, want to hear your views on proposals to create a replacement facility to support people who are homeless in Westminster and deliver new homes, affordable homes and community benefits.
Explore the history of the Harrow Road
St Mungo’s has been at 217 Harrow Road for over 30 years and we have seen the area undergo many changes. We have dug into the archives and looked at the history of the Harrow from before the Westway was built. We have found some great old photos.
Who is St Mungo's?
St Mungo’s vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions. We have been supporting people who are homeless for over 50 years and continue to work harder than ever to reverse the rise in homelessness and rough sleeping and change lives for the better.
The people we support sit right at the heart of everything we do and we are shaped by their stories, their experience and their knowledge. Every night our outreach teams go out to help people sleeping rough to move away from the streets for good, and we provide a bed and support to over 1,350 people every night, including here at 217 Harrow Road.
We’re working in partnership on this particular project with Stories, a socially responsible property development company, that shares our ambition to deliver true social value for the Harrow Road neighbourhood.
How far along the process are we?
We’re working up design options for 217 Harrow Road that we want to share with you. This will all help to help inform the plans that will be submitted to Westminster City Council as part of a planning application later in 2021.
We want to make sure everyone has the chance to have their say so sign up to receive project news by email.
And please share with people you know locally so they can sign up too!
What happens at 217 Harrow Road at the moment?
